You are also reminded that any public use, offer for sale or sale in the United States or publication of the invention anywhere in the world more than one year prior to the filing of a US patent application will prohibit the granting of a U. S. patent. Foreign patent laws in this regard may be much more restrictive than U.S. law. Protect your invention by first filing a patent application.
Things to review before filing a patent application:
- Do not disclose your invention to a third party before filing a patent application unless you trust such third party and they sign a Non Disclosure Agreement
- Upon filing a US provisional patent application you can say you are “patent pending” but eventually you will need to file a regular or non provisional patent application within one year of your provisional patent application filing date
- Since the US has become a first to file country it is important to file a patent application as soon as possible
- Provisional patent applications have less formal requirements, especially regarding drawings allowing drawings, sketches, pictures, marketing materials, business plans, etc. and provisional patent applications have much lower filing fees
- During the year be diligent in development, manufacturing, marketing and licensing your provisional patent application.
- If you make improvements to the invention filed in the provisional patent you can file another provisional patent application to cover any improvements during the year
- Do not disclose your provisional patent number or the filing date
- There is no such thing as a “provisional patent” that is issued by the US Patent Office, rather, what you file is called a US provisional patent application
